ILL - INI

  I am linking up with Show Us Your Football Team Link Up



  My team would be the University Of Illinois - I would bleed Orange and Blue.  How I become a fan would be that my dad would take me to games.  I would have to fight off my mom for the tickets then my brother as he got older.  We would go with some friends from church.  We all had season tickets.  When I was younger I think the best part might of been eating at the steak and shake.  Being able to stay up late.

 In Champaign they call Friday's Illini Friday's so you wear your oranage and blue on Fridays.  I try and wear my Illini clothes also on Game Days.

 I can not wait till Ashley is old enough to enjoy the games.  Or I find Mr. Wonderful to take me to the games.  My goal in life is to go to the Rose Bowl - next time Illinois is in the game hopefully soon!!!

This is a Video from Camp Rantoul - where the football players spend 10 days.  This is  exciting because I grew up in Rantoul.  My parents still live in Rantoul.  The camp is on the old Chute Air Force Base. It is fun to go and watch.  They will hold a scrimmage at my old high school football field Saturday night.

Our quarter back Nathan.
